8 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hearing either Jon Vickers or Christa Ludwig, two of the most riveting singing actors of their time, in Parsifal would be cause for celebration. This recording presents both of these great artists in their only joint broadcast of Wagner's mystical opera, with James Levine bringing his own special magic to the occasion, making it indeed a Parsifal for the ages. Martti Talvela is an authoritative, compassionate Gurnemanz and Bernd Weikl a memorable Amfortas

The Dresden Staatskapelle has a very special tradition of performing Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.

Since 1900, the piece has been performed yearly on Palm Sunday, having been popularized by Richard Wagner in 1843

Missa solemnis by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

1 edition published in 2008 in Latin and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The performances of the Missa solemnis at the Styriarte Festival in Graz and at the Salzburg Festival in summer 2015 were Nikolaus Harnoncourt's last concerts. After his retirement from the stage later that year, it was Mr. Harnoncourt's express wish that this album, made from the material captured at the Graz concerts and rehearsals, also be his last released recordings. Beethoven's late masterpiece has thus become the final chapter of an unparalleled discography spanning 65 years
Eine Alpensinfonie = An Alpine symphony = Une symphonie alpestre ; Vier letzte Lieder = Four last songs = Quatre derniers lieder by Richard Strauss( )

2 editions published in 2012 and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dies ist eine Aufnahme, von der man als Hörer sehr viel lernen kann. Es ist gewusst, dass Musik von Richard Strauss wirklich gut klingt, wenn sie von einem Toporchester wie der Staatskapelle Dresden, dem Concertgebouw Amsterdam oder den Wiener Philharmonikern gespielt wird..... Nun kommt ein Dirigent wie Sebastian Weigle daher und legt sich mit den 'Großen"an. Er weiß genau, dass sein Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester ein hervorragender Klangkörper ist, der aber nicht mit den Wienern & Co zu vergleichen ist. Was macht also Weigle? Er akzeptiert die Grenzen seines Orchesters und versucht auch nie, darüber hinaus zu gehen. Vielmehr nutzt er die Chance und liest die 'Alpensinfonie' recht vertikal. Er verlässt somit den sicheren Pfad Strauss'scher Klangopulenz und bewegt sich auf den 'Nebenpfaden'. Und wie ein Bergführer nimmt er den Hörer mit sich und zeigt ihm die ganze Alpenwelt von einer anderen Seite. Hier hört man plötzlich ganz neuartig wirkende Farben, neue Schattierungen, Crescendi und Akzente. Alles wirkt zwar vertraut und erscheint doch in einer komplett neuen Aufmischung, die der Musik unendlich gut tut. Und so fasziniert man von den Einspielungen Karajans, Thielemanns, Kempes und vielen anderen sein kann, man muss dieser Frankfurter Aufnahme allerhöchste Integrität und künstlerisches Können zugestehen" (pizzicato.lu)
